Macinaggio is considered the liveliest and most animated centre on the Cap Corse peninsula, frequented mainly by yachtsmen and sailors who use its marina. Old traditional fishing boats still dock here and a small auction is held in the morning where fresh fish is sold.

The village is most famous for one of the region’s most precious gems, the Tamarone beach. This long ribbon of fine white sand encloses a magnificent, crystal-clear Caribbean sea, which deserves to be enjoyed in total relaxation and tranquillity.

The customs path

From Macinaggio, it is possible to take several hiking trails, which connect the various Genoese towers and rejoin the customs path. Access to the path is very easy to find: you have to walk north along the harbour. The start of the trail is clearly marked by signs at the end of the second small marina.

The total length of the path from the port of Macinaggio to the village of Centuri is 21 kilometres. The shortest and most scenic section is only 2 kilometres long, about 45 minutes on foot, between the harbour and the beach of Tamarone: it can also be reached by car via a small road that leads to the beach of Cala Francese.

Boat trips to Capraia

During the summer season, boat trips are available from the harbour to explore the region. There are several options to visit the coves, the Cape Corso point, the Genoese towers, and the nature reserve of the Finocchiarola islands. Companies also propose sailing to Capraia, one of the islands of the Tuscan archipelago. You can reach the island in 30-40 minutes and explore it on a day trip.

If, on the other hand, you love the sea and its rich depths, there is a diving centre along the harbour of Macinaggio. The Cap Corse Immersion diving club will take you diving at the Giraglia and Sainte Marie sites and can also let you explore some wrecks such as that of a P47 and a German ship from World War II.
